There's a bizarrely british vibe here - the climate lends itself to non-tropical fruits (loads of strawberries,) but the main crop is tea, introduced by those colonial brits. So we've been on a nice tour of the tea farm and factory, been on a hike through the highland forest where we saw carniverous 'monkey's pitchers' plants and wild orchids, and drank plenty of tea.
So, a nice relaxing day and a half in the highlands, doing not very much :-)
Bus tickets are already bought for Georgetown on penang, where we'll be staying briefly before moving onto thailand.
